My Comcast bill went up again, and i hardly watch TV at all, mostly because i watch Netflix streaming. I'm wondering if i can just get rid of my TV option from the cable company and go through the internet, but i know nothing about internet TV or Apple TV, anyone got info?

I would cancel it. Most stuff on TV can be found for free (legally) on the internet. If not theres always hulu plus. I dont know much about Apple TV.

If you have all of your content on your iTunes library, definitely go for Apple TV, it integrates with iPad and any other iDevice. How ever if you just have netflix and causually watch TV here and there and dont even use iTunes, go for a Roku box. They stream netflix and hulu. They are the best bet if you have no content to your name what so ever. Hope this helped...

Computer/Laptop/tablet with HDMI connection if no HDMI connection on computer then http://www.newegg.com... Just select your interface, make sure it has an HDMI port, buy it, plug it into the interface no install necessary

Software
VLC player
KLite Mega Codec Pack (FULL)

That combo should

just go to the website of the specific news station you like to watch, put it on full screen, plug in the hdmi to the hd tv and boom free HD news. If you don't have an HD tv then you will want an S-Video Cable or a monitor cable. There are also cables for the Yellow video and red and white audio if that's all you have.

Quality Order

HDMI (1080p and 720p)
Monitor Cable (720p)
S-Video and audio/video jack cable (TV quality)

I personally have 2TB of pirated television. I just download the shows from the torrent site and swap shows with friends. I'm up to 7TB now including IMDB 250 most in HD and empires list in HD http://www.empireonline.com...
